Amanda Nunes fought HARD to win a new belt at UFC 215 … and immediately gave up her gold when she met a fan with an amazing story. 

19-year-old cancer survivor — and UFC superfan — Angie Rose talked about their meet-up on social media … describing the incredible act of kindness from the UFC women’s bantamweight champ.

After the post-fight press conference, Angie says she waited in the rain by the fighters’ exit tunnel at Rogers Place in Edmonton. Nunes spotted Angie … and told her bus driver she had to meet the girl. 

Angie says she gave Amanda a couple homemade bracelets … and in return, Amanda gifted Angie her newly won strap and told her she was “the real champion.”

“Hearing those words mean so much to me after I have battled through 9 years of sickness, sadness, pain and suffering with off again, on again cancer,” Angie wrote.

Angie added that her dream is to meet Conor McGregor next.
